Sandra Bullock. biography
Sandra Annette Bullock was born on July 26, 1964, in Arlington, Virginia and made her on-stage debut in an off-Broadway production of No Time Flat at the age of 21.
Sandra landed her first substantial role alongside Sylvester Stallone in the box-office lackluster Demolition Man (1993), but officially made her Hollywood debut in moviegoer favorite Speed (1994).
The rising actress’ commercial success continued with starring roles in While You Were Sleeping (1995), The Net (1995) and the critically-acclaimed crime drama A Time to Kill (1996).
In 2000, Sandra’s popularity increased immensely when she assumed the role of an alcoholic in the dramedy 28 Days and a cop turned beauty pageant contestant in Miss Congeniality.
Sandra was then reunited with the drama genre in Murder by Numbers (2002) and the Oscar-winning film Crash (2004) prior to returning to romance comedies in Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous (2005) and The Lake House (2006) opposite Keanu Reeves.
After starring in the drama mystery Premonition (2007) and romantic comedy The Proposal (2009), Sandra’s acting chops were put under the microscope for role in the box-office failure All About Steve (2009). She immediately bounced back with a critically acclaimed performance in the biopic The Blind Side for which she won her first Oscar for Best Actress.
Sandra’s most recent projects include, The Heat (2013), Gravity (2013), Minions (2014) and The Heat 2 (unknown release date).
